Trash/Yard Waste/Recycling Pickup
Trash, recycling and yard waste collection for the City of Kingsley are contracted through Waste Management of Kentucky. If you have any problems with or concerns about any of their services, please call Waste Management at 502-966-0117.
All services are from the curb and must be out by 6:00 a.m. on Tuesday. When a holiday falls on a Tuesday, collection will be delayed by one day. If an elderly or disabled resident needs their trash collected at the rear of their home, call the commissioner in charge of trash pickups. That commissioner will contact Waste Management to arrange the service.
Waste Management will collect up to 5 standard trash cans 30-32 gallons each, or 10 standard garbage bags. Each residence will be provided one 96 gallon wheeler from Waste Management. If your house does not have a waste wheeler, contact Waste Management at 966-0117 and they will deliver it to your home. The wheeler should stay with the house if you are moving from the city.
Items that will NOT be picked up are:
- Construction debris
- Hazardous materials
- Motor oils and filters
- Paints and paint cans
- Refrigeration appliances.
Note: If you want a second wheeler, the homeowner will be responsible for additional fee
Each residence should have a green Waste Management recycle bin, which stays with the home if you move. If you are missing a recycle bin, call Waste Management at 966-0117. Recycling is picked up every other week, the schedule is listed on the Home Page. Waste Management has ordered us 96 gallon haulers for our recycling, but they have not been delivered yet due to shipping delays.

Yard Waste Collection
Yard waste is collected all year round by Waste Management. Yard waste includes grass, weeds, leaves, shrubbery, branches (not exceed 3 inches in diameter or 4 feet in length). Yard waste must be placed in paper bags (up to 10) labeled “Yard Waste”. Loose items should be bundled and not exceed 4 feet in length or 50 pounds. Christmas trees will be picked up as a tree.
